Beaded Cocktail Dresses

From these early beginnings you could always find perfectly designed silk blouses. The collection soon expanded to bring much-loved glamour to your going out wardrobe. An array of styles include dresses for every occasion from gala-ready gowns to chic cocktail dresses.

Plus Size & Petite Mother of the Bride Outfits

In addition to plus-size partywear, you’ll find statement pieces for all your fun and formal events. Fashionable creations for wedding guests, Mother of the Bride and bridesmaids. Plus party dresses and maxi gowns for evening soirees and partytime. Dress length varies for greater choice with short, long and knee-length dresses on offer. For those that prefer arm coverage, there are 3/4 sleeve, short and long sleeve styles along with sleeveless dresses.

Elegant Eveningwear Dresses

Elegant eveningwear is the style synonymous with this luxe brand. But over the years there has been a shift to bring more versatile designs to your door. It’s no longer reserved for cocktails and dancing. Day dresses have been revamped and now glamour extends to take you from desk to dinner as well as to weekend events too.

Sequinned Eveningwear

The highest quality craftsmanship delivers an exquisite display of day to evening wear that includes both modern and traditional pieces. Women of all ages can feel empowered and beautiful in an Adrianna Papell gown. The attention to detail, sparkling sequins and beads add to its appeal to make every outfit special.

Adrianna Papell Occasionwear

Modern individually crafted pieces are fresh and flattering with cool and warm tones to suit each season. Summer colours and rich vibrant hues for winter in burgundy, purple, silver, teal, navy and the ever-faithful black. Adrianna Papell occasionwear designs accentuate the figure rather than hide it which makes the brand a favourite with the plus size lady.

Layered Shift Dresses

A fashion feast of designs to grab the limelight include stunning art deco dresses with bold beading, sequinned mesh and sheer flared skirts. Adrianna Papell Occasionwear also includes embroidered lace shift dresses and colour block dresses with contrasting panels and ruffle detail. Also on the list are fit and flare,  wrap, floral, belted and ruched waist detail dresses. Opt for anytime elegance with a layered shift dress simply worn with black court shoes and matching clutch. An enviable ensemble perfect for an evening at the races or dinner date.
